One of the things dd wanted to show me, was the Christmas windows at The Bay. She warned me, they weren't that great and she wasn't wrong. I wasn't impressed. These were the best photos I took. They seemed very old fashioned to me? Still it was nice to see them
Below is a photo of dd Christmas tree. It's only 3feet, but she has made a good job of decorating it. The bow she made for the top, she watched a how to video on You Tube to do that. Look at all the presents under the tree....you can sort of see some white gift basket to the left of the tree, that's my Christmas present!!! I wasn't allowed to look at it though!!!!Cheat's Version of Cabbage Rolls for supper on Sunday night, it's such a simple recipe and is delicious. I can recommend it. We then had pear and raspberry crisp for pudding, using the pears I had canned and raspberries I had frozen from the summer. Here is a similar recipe for Apple and Plum Crisp, just substitute the fruits.
On Sunday it was sunny and warm, not above freezing but warmer than it has been. I managed to clean off the front deck and most of the back deck. I picked the last of the brussel sprouts. Hoping to have them for Christmas Day lunch, which we are hosting. Depending on the weather there will be a minimum of four of us, up to a maximum of eight of us.
Finally, a message for Keith and Joyce, sorry to hear about your mother's passing Joyce. I will be thinking of you on Christmas Eve. I am also looking forward to seeing you in 2010.
This one is a real tear jerker, so have a Kleenex handy.......
